Each of these institutions are led by men who themselves “graduated” from one of the three.

Invariably these men insist upon being called, and calling each other, “Dr.” This meritless affectation is never born of any legitimate scholastic accomplishment, and is virtually worthless outside of the insular world of IFB.

The primary function of a woman is to have children, who then become her “mission field.” → It is sinful for a woman to dress in any way that might cause a man to “spiritually stumble” by having a lustful thought. There is no appreciable moral distinction between homosexuality and bestiality, incest, child molestation or rape.

I wrote: Our characters are forged in the crucible of what we survive. They insisted upon that ignoble facade, despite the harm it was all clearly causing you.

In surviving the worst survivors of IFB have become the best. You loved when the cost of that love was to negate the best parts of yourself. For their own dark reasons they kept that wicked dance going. And they used the best of who you are, and the best of what you have to give, to feed those lies.

For the under one year old, a little, ten- to twelve-inch long, willowy branch (striped of any knots that might break the skin) about one-eighth inch diameter is sufficient. A one-foot ruler, or its equivalent in a paddle, is a sufficient alternative.

For the larger child, a belt or larger tree branch is effective.

If the crying turns to a true, wounded, submissive whimper, you have conquered; he has submitted his will.

If the crying is still defiant, protesting and other than a response to pain, spank him again.

Here are some quotes from the book: If you have to sit on him to spank him then do not hesitate. Prove that you are bigger, tougher, more patiently enduring and are unmoved by his wailing. He will very quickly come to know that any time he is laid down there is no alternative but to stay put.

To get up is to be on the firing line and get switched back down.

By way of justifying infant “training” and the continued “submission of the will” of children, IFB parents point to these lines in The Book of Proverbs: by fundamentalist Christian minister Michael Pearl and his wife Debi, is very popular within the IFB. You are to rule over him as a benevolent sovereign. If God’s love is expressed by the “whippings” He gives, then can we not love our children enough to chasten them unto holiness? For the sake of consistency in training, you must follow through.

This guide to “consistently rewarding every transgression with a switching” has sold over 670,000 copies. I have heard a rebellious teenager say, “If they only loved me enough to whip me.”But what of the grouch who would rather complain than sleep? He may not be able to sleep, but he can be trained to lie there quietly.

Independent Fundamental Baptists (IFB) is a loosely-affiliated, cultish denomination of Christian fundamentalists.
